Grinder issue after 2 months
It's a great machine, however all of a sudden the coffee grinder section has completely stopped working. Let's see what happens next. I hope to get a replacement warranty from De Longhi
Love this coffee machine!
I upgraded my 7 year old Philips/Saeco for the DeLonghi Specialista in April. I originally had my eye on the Breville Barista Expresso until my daughter told me about this one, I did my research and I am thrilled with my decision.
It took awhile to set the perfect grind and dosage and I wasted a fair bit of coffee during this process. But once these settings were perfect, this machine now delivers a consistent top quality Barista coffee with the perfect crema. I love that by pulling a lever down, the coffee is tampered perfectly - no mess!
It is easy to use and easy to clean.
I have only had this machine a few weeks and as a fussy coffee drinker, I can safely say you won’t be disappointed if you purchase the DeLonghi Specialista.
Best Barista style machine - easy use and beautiful crema on my coffee!
Had a Barista type Delonghi machine years back and then settled for a Nespresso which I love for convenience BUT this LaSpecialista machine is worth the tiny bit more time in making a superb coffee. Perfect grind, perfect crema on top... Love it and you can get it at a great price from The Good Guys too!
Better price and more function than breville.
I use the new la specialista every morning since I purchased it in last month. Comparing with Breville, it comes with more function. But for me, key reason to buy it is price much valuable than its competiters.
Purchased in March 2019.
Easy to Use and so quiet
The grinder is so much quieter than my previous machine and I love that the grounds don't fall out of the group handle because it is all contained in the grinder station ready to tamp. Even my husband who is disabled and doesnt have much strength in his arms can tamp it's so easy. Initially I had to set the dose and grind and this took a few shots to get the coffee perfect. I have about 4 different brands of coffee beans that i love to rotate and its easy just to reset the grind. The milk frothing is also very easy. Even my little niece can make hot chocolates for herself and she loves the foam function as it makes lots of fluff as she calls it. Very happy with my purchase. I feel the machine has lots of features for the price i paid.
Purchased in March 2019 for $949.00.
Perfect addition to the kitchen! No longer have to leave the house for a GREAT coffee!!
The quality of the coffee is great - guests in my house have said that the coffee I serve is the same quality of that from a cafe. The machine remains constant in taste and quality. As someone who loves a HOT coffee it is perfect in delivering results. As someone who has always wanted a one push and given a result I was skepticism about purchasing the machine but it goes above and beyond expectation.
Easy to use and looks great on my kitchen bench!
After an initial setup I’ve found the machine pours very consistent, great tasting coffee. Overall it's a very premium looking machine for the price and I love that the tamping station makes the process a lot cleaner.
